Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

In addition to the 27 million, the city is exposed to any revenue shortfalls expected to cover the garage debt payments.

Per Twitter - Loar and Lucas have been visiting the project up at KCI. Sounds like there may be something behind the rumors that she’s the next Airport Committee lead.
I think Fowler was with them also...so maybe he just went with the people whose district it is?

I agree--with an exception. Re-purpose the old "boat" building as the new Steamboat Arabia Museum. The building is constructed to look like a steamboat. Build the new casino/hotel across the street.
I like the Steamboat Arabia relocation idea

I say tear it down and build a real hotel/casino combo with a streetcar extension.

Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

Does Johnson County follow the same process? If so, why does it matter if this is what Jackson, County is using it? Johnson County can use the process described in the article because their data is vastly superior to Jackson County's and they attempt to inspect most houses after they sell. They hav...

After reading the background I have no issues with what the county did. It's on the ones who set the dates to lower rates now to assist taxpayers. Will any of them do it? Lol This is how I see it to.

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

Lucas responded publicly on twitter stating he has no intention of getting rid of Troy if he won the election. Doesn't mean that Troy is interested in staying. I guess we'll see.
